the common denominator.



when her eyes caught your gaze
on another rapid decline

you suspected the night would
likely not revert to stillness

in truth, latent thoughts would
seldom unfold that way again

*

her hips and their words
would grasp at your heart

with smoldering fingers
she would borrow your watch

from inside of the sea
and pending another departure

*

despite the slack obedience
to cyclical verdicts

she would jump through
revolving doors with a stranger

brandishing a propensity
for fastening universes together
